I think there is a small error or two in your turn.

1) First, my Zimus should take 10 damage from your Lifeshaper and thus be at 6 health.

2) No combat should take place in Lane 3 since both your General and my Zombie Infantry are Defensive during your turn.

I think that this shouldn't haven't much effect on the game, so I am just going to take my turn.

Well, Zimus dies from general's buff. But you are right about the infantry. One sec, I'll edit.

You are right, the General was played before combat, so the Zimus does die [not that it matters]. Sorry about that.

Noetherian Turn 18:
Hand: Lv1 Deepbranch Prowler, Lv2 Enrage, Lv2 Glowstride Stag, Lv1 Darkshaper Savant, Lv3 Fleshfiend 

I play Fleshfiend 3 into Lane 3 [replacing my Zombie Infantry]
I play Enrage 2 on my Lane 5 Zimus.
I declare the attack and the game ends.

Noetherian's Field   Strangah's Field
 Fleshfiend 3 (15-15/4) Lane 1  
 Zimus 3 (16/16)* Lane 2  Lv3 Chrogias (25+6/9)*
 Fleshfiend 3 (15/9)* Lane 3  Lv3 Alloyin General (6/18)*
  Lane 4  
 Zimus 3 (16-10/16+5) Lane 5  
Life 16   Life 0
 

 

Good Game! It has been quite a while since I have played a game that went to Turn 18.

Yeah, wow. Really good game!

I figured you had to get a winning Enrage eventually.

It's funny, it seems like we're getting better games with the booster draft than we're getting in the fully constructed format. Both are fun and working well, but a lot of the booster draft games have been really great games, to an even greater degree than in some of the recent constructed tournaments.

Congratulations to Noetherian, who has now guaranteed a spot in the top 8!  Good luck to Strangah in your last game--you can still pull out a top 8 spot with another win.

I wonder if that's because in constructed, you know which phase of the game you're aiming to win in since you can design your deck around it, and thus games tend to be somewhat predictable--either the early-game decks overwhelm the late-game ones, or the latter turn things around and crush the former. If they're aiming for the same phase, the one with the slower deck usually wins. With drafting… maybe it's often not clear who's playing short or long, and so maybe the game becomes less predictable.

SkyAnemone, that might be right.  A related aspect is that constructed decks are (of course) much more tuned.  A fast deck playing a very slow deck might be positioned to win in 5 or 6 turns.  And a slow deck might start becoming ridiculous by turn 9 or 10.  With the booster draft decks, where you're trying to make a "pretty good" deck, not a great one, the fast decks might not be able to win until turn 10, and the slow deck may still be looking for its big cards (or enough of them) past turn 16.

Plus, I think I just really like long games--they feel dramatic to me.
